Be careful where you put your trash!

A neighbor recently reported that someone placed several bags of trash in her trash can:
I went to take my trash out today and noticed a lot of trash bags in my can. I knew it was not mine so I looked thru it. I saw it belonged to a [neighbor a few blocks away]. I saw this because she had put some of her mail in the bags. My trash in the alley and I noticed similar bags along my alley neighbor trash. I am not sure why she is dumping trash bags (4 bags) in my trash and my neighbors.
This is hopefully an isolated incident that is a nuisance rather than a crime, but it's a good reminder to shred personally identifiable information rather than putting it in your garbage. If a neighbor can identify you by the trash you leave behind, someone with more nefarious intentions can, too.
